cupcakeMAG: home edition - editors' pick! - plus a giveaway!



My New Years Resolution this year is to do one thing: learn how to sew. Yes, that is right! Watch out Martha Stewart! I am just dying to sew something up for my Littles! Well, I have come across my perfect accessory to make this happen. The Singer Esteem II



Isn't she pretty? I know. 

Well, I had to give it a try and just fell in love. When you sit down in front of a sewing machine for the first time it can be so overwhelming. What are these millions of little buttons and knobs for? Well this machine is simple to use, a very basic machine that does everything you need. In fact, it helped me start my resolution a little bit early! After watching the instuctional DVD included I was ready to start sewing! With little experience in the sewing machine world - I knew it was a match. 

Why was it love at first sight? The features. It is all about the features. The automatic needle threader is just a must and makes sewing a pleasure. Adjustable stitch length & width, 23 built-in stictch patters and hundreds of stictch fuctions helps us leave behind days of frustraton caused by limited stich patterns and difficult threading in the other machines we reviewed. The machine isn't overhwhelming to the beginning sewer and gives you just the right amount of convenient features. And of course it was hand picked as my favorite, oh and Martha Stewart too! 

What else does it offer? 
Fully Automatic 1-step Buttonhole
Class 15 Bobbin
Free Arm with Accessory Storage 
Heavy Duty Metal Frame for Skip-free Sewing
25 Year Limited Warranty
And for price of only $132 on target.com! Curently on sale for $94!

Well, guess what? Happy Holidays to you because we are giving away one! Even if you already sew or if you just getting starting this is the perfect machine for the crafty! Read on to see just how to win!

Note: We usually don't post on the weekend but I was so excited to personally share this with you & wanted to give you an extra day to try and win it! You can thank me later......

  90. I would love to have this because I had a sewing machine for years, but it broke and I wasn't able to get it repaired (or replaced). I love sewing - I make quilts, gift items for friends (like placemats, winebags), I want to make my curtains for my living room, and now that I'm losing weight soon I'll have to start altering my clothes. I would get a LOT of use out of this.
